Save the Drama for Your Mamma

Career update for all of you that are interested.  I have pursued a couple miscellaneous opportunities that have popped up in the past month.  None of them were truly ideal, some offered excellent pay, but they were contractor work, some offered stability, but it was for half my pay, and some of the people I met with just annoyed the heck out of me.  In general, I would say that in the midst of a big recession is a difficult time for job hunting.  Fortunately, I feel like I have a decent opportunity that will keep the Deem’s thriving for the remainder of 2009 and hopefully allow more time for me to land a position more suited to my skills and abilities.  The big pharmaceutical company who was my client, is offering me a contractor spot to begin once my employment with my agency ends.  It should be a good fit, a very easy transition, and an excellent story to tell on the resume, “Yes, I got laid off, but the company I was supporting valued my contribution and asked if I could work for them.”

Anyways, I think I need to now incorporate myself and sort of become my own business.  Anyone have some good name suggestions?  I always liked Paper Airplane Marketing, maybe Deem’s Marketing Services, or something grand like Major Medical Marketing Industries.  Whatever the name, I think this puts me a spot where I could potentially start taking side projects for small businesses and develop any type of materials you need.  If you’re a small business, I would be happy to meet with you and discuss mail campaigns, web design, newspaper ads, and loyalty programs. 

By the way, I looked at private health insurance and we’re going to get a great plan through Aetna for less than we’re currently paying.  Things are looking up for me, but I will be bummed if I don’t go on this road trip.
